Holo really should've added more descriptive error messages already

Are there folders within folders in the zip? Hidden files? jpg files renamed as png or vice versa? Is the archive over 100MB or password protected?

It has no folders, hidden files or anything of the sort, I just checked and the filesize is 118mb and I didn't see the limit for the chapters being 100mb, that kind of sucks though since the chapter is long

I haven't had this problem in a long time. When I try to upload any chapter of any series I do, after a few seconds of trying to upload a message pops up, like "Something's wrong with your upload".
What happened?

Don't necro a 3-year-old thread, make your own
On that note, try Discord for problems like this.

Copied from Discord's auto reply
Uploads failing common causes:

1. Connection is timing out to our server. If it takes longer than 1 minute this is probably the cause.
2. Files or folder having loads of (((([[[[]]])))) in filename can cause it to break.
3. Nested folders within folders or hidden folders.
4. Not a .zip. We don't support .rar or .7zip at this time.
5. Apple device owners - the zip contains a hidden folder and metadata.
6. It's your first upload.

Solutions:

a. Optimise your files to reduce filesize. See https://mangadex.org/thread/250545 for info on how to optimise.
b. Try a free trustworthy VPN such as ProtonVPN (free tier) https://account.protonvpn.com/signup and set the exit node to EU.
c. Rename the files and folders, make sure there's no nested or hidden files/folders and zip as a .zip.
d. Apple device owners - use the solutions posted in here to remove the files. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10924236/mac-zip-compress-without-macosx-folder
e. If all else fails: https://discordapp.com/channels/403905762268545024/726921084187705454/726921234373410966 Post using the format supplied and let someone else upload it for you.
f. First uploads require approval. It will be checked as soon as someone has time.
g. If you are a Group Leader use the new Dropbox uploader.
